Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Nielsen full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Brand name, exposure to large clients, global company.

Cons

Terrible morale, problems with attrition, uninspiring middle-managers, lack of transparency, extremely bureaucratic, inflated titles, noncompetitive salaries, too much micromanagement.

Advice to Management

There is a reason every analyst at Nielsen is miserable. It's about time someone started asking the right questions and acting on the problems to turn the morale issues around. Hiring smart people from top colleges and letting them waste away at dead end jobs will not be sustainable for long term growth. Unless of course you're fine with hiring all leaders from outside.

    I worked at Nielsen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice compensation and perks, working independently

    Cons

    Extreme pressure to produce numbers that are difficult to achieve on a consistent basis, much of your job performance depends on the decisions of strangers to say yes to participating, you're only as good as what you've done this week, no life/work balance

    Advice to Management

    Include quality in your measurement of performance!
